Should my delphiniums be up by now?

    Yes definitely,  they may have been slug chewed as soon as they poked their shoots up.
    Gardening on the wild, windy west side of Dartmoor.

    Mine was being eaten so I put a slug collar round the base and now it is happy and I think there's even a flower bud forming.

    Slugs love them so much that they'll eat the stem well down into the soil, leaving just a hole!
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    I surrounded mine with a copper mesh strip and a circle of H. grit, so far, they look okay.
  • Thank you for the info.
